Beat

I sat on that bench

outside the post office

dog tired in the morning sun

She sat beside me there

attracted to my friendly canine

who loves everyone no matter

how they smell.

Beat smelled of sunshine on fabric

and last night’s liquor

Yeah, so glad it’s spring

she said

Sleeping outside naked

gets to be such a bitch

in these long winters.
